About the Program

Welcome to the Environmental Science Program at the University of Calgary!

Our program offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science.  Our mission and goals are to produce graduates who can critically and objectively address potential or actual environmental issues of all kinds.  We emphasize a multidisciplinary approach to understanding environmental issues facing society while providing each student with expertise in one of six concentrations.

The Environmental Science Program launched in 1997 and has more than 400 graduates working throughout Alberta, Canada and the world.  We are proud that our graduates quickly obtain positions in their field and become leaders in a wide variety of environment-related sectors.

Our Team

We have five faculty members each representing a key discipline in environmental science, an administrative & student programs officer, and a technologist (Directory).  We also benefit from the expertise of emeritus professors, adjunct professors, and other professionals from academia, private industry, governnment, and non-governmental organizations.

Our Facilities

We have a well-equipped lab for analyzing chemical and biological components of our environment.  Priority is given to ENSC undergraduates, but other users may be considered on a cost-recovery basis.  Please contact our technologist for more information.
